Description
An epic novel depicting the changing landscape of gay life in modern America

An epic novel of the highest order, How Long Has This Been Going On? brings together a rich and varied cast of characters to tell the tale of modern gay America. Beginning in 1949 and moving to the present day, Mordden, through the subculture of gay and lesbian life, puts a unique and innovative spin on modern history.

Among the many who populate this dazzling trip are the Saint of Christopher Street, a policeman who becomes a legendary porn star, the Mistress of Thriller Jill's, an acid-tounged lesbian bar owner, and the Green Goddess, a drag queen who we eventually learn is the novel's true narrator. An adventurous, adroit, and fascinating novel by one of the finest gay writers of our time.

"Masterful...This singular work chronicles the emerging gay consciousness with trenchant humor, editorial observations tinged with a soupcon of cynicism and scenes of often devastating emotional impact". -- Publishers Weekly

"A vast and emphatically sweeping saga of queer life since 1949...Mordden covers his history with remarkable effectiveness and the banter is priceless". -- Kirkus Reviews
